Even though our UD Labs™ team is hard at work putting an end to the recession, our economic counsel informs us that this whole recession thing is still going on.

Your Hard Drive, Everywhere

Your Hard Drive, Everywhere

It's a classic conundrum—all your fun stuff (MP3s, Minesweeper, your award-winning collection of Jessica Alba photos) is at home, and you rarely are.

GAME ON

Multitask: The Game

Your ability to simultaneously email, IM, talk on the phone and craft perfectly believable expense reports—all while negotiating Middle East peace—are legend.

A long time ago at a kegger far, far away…your dad met your mom. Or maybe not—maybe some blonde who could've been your mom if things hadn't gotten complicated, if he didn't relocate across the country and if she didn't hook up with his best friend. Anyway, the photographic proof is probably on this site, devoted to a now-mythical time before digital cameras and Flickr.

When you say the iPhone is sexy, you usually mean it metaphorically. But this new line of ladies' underthings decidedly does not. We'll let you figure out to use them, but we will say this much: it's a lot more fun than answering your phone.
